Welcome to AAU Admissions

Allied American University has made the difficult decision to discontinue operations and will no longer offer its programs to students after December 31, 2016. AAU’s last classes will begin on October 3, 2016. The teach-out process will be completed with the review or approval of the U.S. Department of Education, AAU’s accrediting agency the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC), the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE), and other applicable regulatory agencies.

AAU is working diligently to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that every student has the opportunity to complete his or her program of study. Beginning February 17, 2016, AAU began notifying its active student population about the teach-out and working individually with students to help determine their best option in order for them to achieve their academic goals. Students have the option to stay through the final term at AAU, transfer to a partner school, or transfer to a school of their choosing.

Now that all active students have been notified, AAU has begun to inform non-active students who have taken classes with AAU over the past year. For students who are close to graduating and/or plan to continue their studies with AAU through the end of the year, AAU remains steadfast to the promise of helping students reach their academic goals.

AAU would like to express its sincere gratitude to all students for choosing Allied American University as their educational partner. AAU wishes all of its students continued success in the future.

For any questions or concerns, students may contact their AAU Registration Representative at (888) 712-2733, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST.
